Chris Sale hates walks

Scott Merkin:

Location on the fastball was center cut, as illustrated by Sale during his postgame media session. But the walk hit harder with Sale, even at this early stage of Spring Training.”It absolutely kills you every time,” said Sale of free passes. “Home runs happen, but walks are something you can control. You get two outs and walk a guy, it brings up another hitter. And look what happened.

“Just two-out walk, 0-2 home run, those things can’t happen. I don’t think it was the wrong pitch by any means. It was the wrong location. That one’s on me.”

Sale, also, isn’t a fan of the ‘I got my work in’ attitude:

“I don’t look back on this by any means and say, ‘I got my work in. I threw my pitches. All in all, not a bad day,'” said Sale, who allowed three runs on three hits over three innings. “That’s not the mindset at all. I’ve got to be better than that, and I got this week to do that.”

I like Sale’s attitude.
